(in a Pennsylvania Town)
I became disabled years ago. I used to make things for my mom who died 20 years ago from breast cancer.
My sister convinced me to start making things again.
My Vtmoriginals on etsy is dedicated to my mom. I use rocks, buttons, porcupine quills, nuts, washers, and just plain junk.
The quills I got from a dead road kill. I inserted them in dart ends &strung them on braided leather cord.
The keys are 3 old ones on old beads with rhine & cameos.
Then we have a group of old buttons which one is hooked to an old slave bracelet.
The rest are on settings. One has a snowflake in center and one is mother of pearl rose, and then we have just common rocks I wire wrapped & strung them on old chains I had.
Also in the rock pick is huge green mother of pearl button on my old compact mirror top.
